I’m a junior majoring in Film and Media Arts! My areas of interest are women’s right, gun control, sex education, immigration, and healthcare! I love storytelling and I have a variety of different interests. I want to make a difference through my stories, and journalism allows me to tell fascinating stories in a way that can have an impact on society.


Fun fact?  I traveled from Madrid to Amsterdam in 7 days with no money and no phone.
